Sleeps 6 | Bedrooms 3 | Bathrooms 2 | Maximum 2 Dogs

Key Features


Behind this traditional Norfolk flint frontage, lies an oasis of charm, style and beautiful design. Not only is this enchanting cottage gorgeous, cosy and totally chic, it's full of surprises too. Set in the bustling village of Burnham Market, the dreamy Norfolk coast is almost within touching distance. Yet it's the world on your doorstep that makes this spot so special; with 2 bedrooms in the original cottage, the fun spills outside to the rear where you'll find a self-contained annexe for your invited guests and a fantastic contemporary garden with its own raised hot tub, available upon request. Monkey Puzzle Cottage is everything and anything you want it to be. Please note this property is suitable for a maximum for 4 adults and 2 children.


Having been tastefully refurbished, this sophisticated cottage has a great open plan living space for socialising with the family, a tranquil courtyard garden with a raised hot tub, and a stylish annexe that just adds the charm of Monkey Puzzle Cottage.


To the rear of the property there is a fully enclosed landscaped garden centred around the well-established Monkey Puzzle Tree. There is a relaxed seating area, perfect for relaxing or al fresco dining on the patio area as well as a charcoal BBQ available for guests to use (fuel not provided).

At the rear of the garden, you will find the luxurious raised hot tub! Set up a few steps, elevated above the rest of the garden, why not have a pre-breakfast dip and enjoy listening to the morning bird song or pour yourself a glass of bubbly and have a celebratory soak long into the evening – maybe even under the stars! Please note, we cannot guarantee that the hot tub will be up to maximum temperature on the day of your arrival.

Unrestricted parking is available roadside at the front of the property. Please note that the cottage has shared access between the back door and rear path.
